I kinda agree, but the hack in 50e1f4d76a9d45c940733f05ccd42c5bbe6ca132
which caused this was is hack too. Somebody really need to rewrite the
whole interface handling, it's a total mess with the master being
specially treated but initialised by the same functions etc. I think we
should start having a IEEE80211_IF_TYPE_MASTER for this, maybe then
things will fall into place nicer.
